MESSAGE: Seeds Of Destiny Devotional | SOD| 9th May 2022 — Faith: Seeing Beyond The Immediate
Some time ago, someone asked me, ‘When you were stepping into Ministry, what plan did you have just in case the Ministry didn’t work?’ I said, there was no such plan because that was practically out of the picture. The truth is, anywhere you see God, ask Him. “O God, this your boy, Paul, did it ever cross his mind one day that Ministry would not work?” The answer is “NO” because there was no thought like that; not even in the dream.
The Ministry over-worked before we started. I saw the outcome from the outset. I knew we would preach to crowds around the world. We started running five services at the Area 1 church when the three services were not yet filled. The first service was filled to under the gallery, the second service was filled up to the gallery, and the third service was just halfway filled. I announced five services because God said it. Then, I had scriptures to charge it. All the services were filled to the brim except the last service. The five services continued until we started six services with overflows.
Faith is seeing the outcome from the outset through the Word of God. It is seeing the realities of the invisible beyond the uncertainties of the visible. Faith is seeing beyond the immediate to the ultimate. It is being convinced of what is yet to be seen (2Corinthians 4:17-18, Hebrews 11:27).
Beloved, if you can see it ahead, no devil can stop you here. Look beyond the immediate. Don’t allow the situations around you define your life; let the Word of God define your life.
Remember this: Faith is seeing beyond the immediate to the ultimate.
- Boost your faith by studying the Word of God daily.
- Look beyond where you are now; see where God wants you to be.
- Pray your way into the future you desire.
PRAYER: Lord, thank You for the beautiful plans You have for me. I see everything working in my favour, and my lines are falling in pleasant places, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

THE SALVATION PRAYER
Say the following prayer
In the name of Jesus, I come to you. I accept that I am not in tune with You and that I desire to be. Please forgive me for all of my sins. According to the Bible, if I confess with my lips, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, I will be saved.
